Sunflower Chive ‘Cheese’ Cucumber Bites


Sunflower Chive ‘Cheese’ Cucumber Bites


  1. Combine sunflower seeds and salt in bowl of food processor. Process for 10-20 seconds until they form a fine powder. Add remaining ingredients onion through water and process again for 1-2 minutes, until super creamy. You will likely have to scrape down the sides once or twice. Set aside.

  2. If desired, peel cucumber lightly in alternating rows, to create a pretty striped effect on outside. Slice into 1-1.5" pieces and set aside.

  3. Spread a spoonful of "cheese" on top of each cucumber and place on plate or platter. Continue until done, sprinkle with chopped chives and sumac if desired, and enjoy!
